Bradshaw’s Photo Highlight: Atluck Lake

“Maybe I’ll come back to Atluck in colder weather”

After a week of reaching over 40 thousand people, and more than three hundred shares of my Humpback whale photos on Facebook, I can’t seem to produce a decent photo lately.

It’s not that I haven’t tried. I drove out to one of my favourite photography locations in the North Island, Atluck Lake, and found some compositions, but the lighting just wasn’t right.

It’s hard to believe I came up empty after a morning drive along Atluck Main.

With Pinder Peak towering above and the foliage along the edge of the lake in full fall colour, I should have captured something epic. Dark shadows from the mountain above overpowered anything I tried to capture.

Maybe I’ll come back to Atluck in colder weather. A couple of years ago I had better luck and light when I photographed Atluck Lake after a light snowfall.
